Instead of Designing the dynamic Republic has a direct replacement for the government, how about as a direct governance of a social media platform. Consider things like privacy, security, accessibility, authentication, technologies involved, rules of behavior and how that can be enforced through similar means, content sharing, data sharing, human resources for all aspects of management, advertisement, managing public and private online identities, and the PII involved.
As with all things: how do you keep trolls from brigading?
How do finances play into things? Does everyone have a vote in financial matters, or only those who have their own capital invested? If it’s publicly traded stock, having people being able to sweep up stocks and exert undue influence defeats the whole purpose, yet the carrot for investment is the return on investment. Maybe it can straight up be invested directly by the users? Ha! Advertisers would be directly paying you to look at their ads!
I don’t think a financial tie to the platform should be mandated, that would hinder buy-in dramatically (ha!).
Participating in the governance, at least as far as selecting a primary representative, should totally be required at the startn
Could start with a 1:1 comparison to other social media platforms, to see what works/ doesn’t work.
